EDITORS’ NOTES

After the vibrant frenzy of Syro, Richard D. James slows down. The Cheetah EP is a brief but luminescent set of velvety acid and warped sound experiments—made with the notoriously difficult, early ‘90s synth of the same name. As heard on highlights “CHEETAHT7b” and “2X202-ST5,” James makes the most of the challenge.

Beautiful.

For the person complaining about an album, he's released well over 250 songs on his sound cloud for free. This song (or a variation of it) being one of them. It's a beautiful song.

Just OK

Like another reviewer said, I'll always buy Richard's music. But this ep is a little lackluster. I'm sure the cheetah synth was a beast to program, but that doesn't make this a good album in of itself. I think the songs are little one dimensional for Richard's usual output. If your getting a recent ep of his, orphaned deejay selek and computer controlled acoustic instruments part 2 are much better.

Not his best but...

It sure beats anything on the top 40 today, and he deserves his mullah. So take mine!
